Happy Sunday everyone!
I pulled out another one of my older Magenta Art Stamps this morning. I’m afraid to say I have never used this one as it was so much bigger than I thought when I ordered it and quite honestly the size scared me! I was concerned about my ability to stamp a decent impression (although Magenta stamps stamp beautifully) and then my ability to colour the image – especially that big leaf!
But this past month focussing on wood-mounted stamps has really renewed my confidence in stamping without the MISTI and I have been practicing my colouring so I decided to give the stamp a whirl! I’m so glad I did!
I coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os using the palette from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge (saffron, yellow and green). I didn’t want too many layers on my card so I embossed a My Favorite Things frame die around the image and adhered a die cut sentiment from Honey Bee (as well as stamping ‘sending’ from a Clearly Besotted set). Finally, I added a few Nuvo Jewel dots to finish off my card.
Et voila! Day 21 colouring done!
Thanks for stopping by!
